He was a great advisor and teacher to me, introduced me to the world of information theory and discrete mathematics, showed me a role model of how an academic advisor should be, showed me how an 1-hour lecture to students must be, taught me how beautiful and thrilling a fundamental research could be, how exciting an application research could also be, that changed my whole life ever after since my PHD candidate period at USC, helped me always when I needed some advise, long time ago when I first started my job at Qualcomm as well as at Yonsei University, and recently when I started my 2-year position of dept chair in 2009.
"Teaching does not really exist. What exists is learning. And the job of what we call the teacher is to assist students in the process of learning. So that's what I try to do."
